1. Tell us more about your role & responsibilities? 

At the age of 18, working as an International Youth Mentor, an awarded author, a Motivational and Public speaker is all about the fact that I always wish to use my voice and my clarity of thoughts for the betterment of our society. I feel that if I have a voice and I can impact the minds of the people with it, then I should utilize it for the development of the world and enrichment of the communities. That is why I primarily work as a Youth Mentor and a Public speaker - to guide the ones who are looking for the right direction or the right pathway in their life. 

I never think that I am too young for it, as a person's age can never be the criteria for a person's experience or clarity of thoughts. For me, it has always been about utilizing my potentials and putting forth my efforts towards impacting society. When we talk about these titles that you've listed, for me they come as a reminder about the role I am needed to play in this world; to drive social changes, instill the feeling of passion and enthusiasm in the hearts of people from all walks of life, and use my voice to take a stand for causes worthwhile. I never consider myself too young for any of my endeavors - be it my multiple TED talks, Josh Talk, or acclaimed novels. All that I feel is a sense of dedication towards what I am passionate about. 

2. How did you rise up to your position and how can a student be aspiring the same, approach it? 

It is a racemic mixture of passion, dedication, and consistency of efforts. Whatever endeavor I decide to work on, I make it a point to be truly passionate about it, feel dedicated while putting in the efforts towards it, and finally, be consistent while working on it. I remember writing my first novel at the age of 16 titled A Celebration In Tribulation within 22 days. And my second one, PANDEMIC 2020, in less than a month as well! However, it wasn't a predefined period I had in my mind as I embarked on the journey of writing both of these novels. It was simply the result of putting in a great amount of effort in the process of writing and maintaining consistency throughout the process. So be passionate, be dedicated, and be consistent. That's my two cents on this point. 

3. What have been some of your biggest challenges and learnings from what you do? 

Youths’, I believe. Because when I go on to International platforms to address, let's say, corporate leaders or big-name persons who are mostly twice or thrice older than me right now at the age of 18, sometimes I do have had people doubt if I was up for the work. However, every time this has happened, I always responded back clearing everyone's doubts with a thought-provoking performance. That is what I've learned and always preach as well - let your actions, your success responds back to the naysayers. Don't waste time worrying about them. 

4. What did you do in your current role that makes you feel really proud of yourself? 

Proud is not the word I'd use, as it has a lot many intricate meanings attached to it. The word I'd use would be happy. What makes me happy is my go-to motto in life - the main motto for me behind working as an International Youth Mentor, a Motivational and Public speaker is the fact that I always wish to use my voice and my clarity of thoughts for the betterment of our society. I feel that if I have a voice and I can impact the minds of the people with it, then I should utilize it for the development of the world and enrichment of the communities. That is why I primarily work as a Youth Mentor and a Public speaker - to guide the ones who are looking for the right direction or the right pathway in their life. I never think that I am too young for it, as a person's age can never be the criteria for a person's experience or clarity of thoughts. 

5. What's your message to encourage students to do internships and attend conferences? 

Well, the youth of today is driven and has a deal of potential. What these youngsters need to understand is that this internship offers or the web-based conferences are a great tool for the enhancement of their potentials, especially in the professional sphere; the sphere that a person's life is greatly dependent upon. Youngers have enough time right now, especially during this COVID19 Outbreak to benefit from such internships and conferences.
